Which Vehicle Tuning Tool Should I Use?

Which Vehicle Tuning Tools Should I Use? Here at VIEZU, we often get asked ‘what tuning tools and software should I use?’ by those who are new to the industry. Due to our many years of experience, we are very knowledgeable when it comes to the various tuning tools and software that are available today. We support over 1000 dealers around the world, and we have won numerous awards for our work in the industry. If you are trying to decide which tuning tools to use, look no further!

Master and slave tuning

We provide master and slave tuning tools. But what is the difference between the two?


Master and slave tuning tools look very similar. With a master tool, the files are non-encrypted. This means that you can modify files yourself with map editing software. You can obtain these files from any source, and you can even make your own if you have the correct map editing software and the expertise to do so. If you do not have adequate training to modify files to your requirements correctly, you can buy pre-modified files to install. Here at VIEZU, our experienced colleagues create sophisticated tuning files in-house that you can purchase here. https://viezu-master-files.com/


Slave tuning tools look almost the same as master tools; they can read and write a file from a vehicle. However, the tool cannot open the file for editing. You will need a master tool for that.
Now that you know more about master and slave tools, you will be asking yourself which brands and products you should use.
